Metso Unveils C120 Jaw Crusher

Featuring a nominal power of 160kW, an operating speed of 230 rpm, the unit weighs in at 26,000 kg.
The company claims that special attention was paid to its casting and design, which is based on Finite Element Analysis, giving the C120 the capability to withstand constant crushing over a long life.

The unit features a newly-engineered fixed jaw die, which Metso says is longer than any other in its class. It also features a feed opening of 1200mm x 870mm and an ?aggressive? cavity cross section.

?When starting the C120 project, we listened closely to our customers and collected field data from a number of sites. Based on that, we decided to design the crusher cavity and kinematics first,? said Ilkka Somero, Metso?s product manager for jaw crushers. ?As a result, Metso can now offer aggregates producers, large scale contractors and mining companies a new crusher that meets all the standards set for any demanding application.?

Because of its compact design, Metso says the C120 unit can be easily installed, using rubber mounting pads without the need for separate horizontal supports. A mechanical or hydraulic setting adjustment can be chosen, as can several cavity options. ?Robust? composite flywheels let users access service points safely.
